Open science monitor case study - Study
White Rabbit is an open source scientific hardware developed at CERN in collaboration with a wide range of organizations worldwide and companies. Beyond its deployment in numerous scientific infrastructures worldwide, White Rabbit has already shown its innovation potential by being commercialized and deployed in different industries. White Rabbit offers an example of how CERN managed to transform the open source software model to capital intensive innovations; that is, motivating self-interested actors to freely reveal innovations developed with private resources without compensation... guarantees. The severe complexity and heterogeneity of the contributors to White Rabbit’s development, combined with the plurality of market adoption trajectories, provides a unique opportunity to explore the phenomenon of open scientific hardware and its potential for the European economy.
